LILLOOET, B. C, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1914.
$2 PER YEAR
Annual Report of Lillooet
Mining Division
(Report of Minister of Mines)
South Fork of Bridge River
Why Not — Two other veins
occur on this property. One outcrops at a point about 150 feet
above the bed of the South fork
of Bridge river, and about 300
feet below the one on which work
is progressing. The strike of
this second vein is about parallel
to the one already described, and
the dip, so far as can be judged
before any work is done, is about
the same. The main outcrop,
which is about 200 feet in length
and from 8 inches to 2 feet in
width, seems to indicate a well
defined fissue-vein.
The third vein on the property
outcrops along the summit of the
bluff that forms the river-bank,
about 700 feet above the river bed
The opportunities for cheap
mining and milling here are better than at almost any other camp
I have visited in years, as a good
location for a mill-site is to be had
on the river, almost in a direct
line down from the portal of the
drift, the slope being at an angle
of about 50 decrees. The river
will not only furnish ample water
for milling, etc., but also power
more than sufficient to drive all
machinery at mine and mill, while
a plentiful supply of timber occurs
in the vicinity of the summit of
the river-bank, from where it can
be lowered to the mine-workings
instead of having to be transported uphill, as is penally the
case at Cadwallader creek mines.
Forty Thieves.—On the north
and adjoining tbe Why Not group
is situated the Forty Thieves
claim, owned by the Estate of
the late John Marshall, a pioneer
of Lillooet, who died about two
years ago. This was located in
1897, one of the earliest locations
made in the district, A prominent outcrop of rusty - looking
quartz, near a large rock-slide on
the face of the high precipitous
bluff that forms the east bank of
the South Fork of Bridge river,
was responsible for the discovery
of the vein by a prospector who
was engaged tracing up quartz
float found at the placer-diggings
at the mouth of this river. No
work has been done on the dam
since it was Crown-granted, about
1808. when it was bonded to a
syndicate represented by Barclay
Ron throne, M.E., of Vancouver.
A short crosscut adit had previously been driven near the summit of the river-bank, which had
exposed a.quartz vein about 3 ft.
in width, extremely well defined,
so far as could be judged, where
it outcropped and was exposed
underground. Mr. Bonthrone
started driving a crosscut adit
under the rock-slides from a
point near the high-water mark
in the river. The ore-body where
opened showed it to bedippingat
an angle of about 50 degrees towards the north-east, or in the
same direction in which the adit
was being driven; this adit was
about 200 feet vertically below
and 100 feet south-west of the
outcrop. This crosscut would require to be driven about 300 feet
to strike the vein, but was abandoned after driving about 100 ft;
and the property, after being
Crown - granted, has remained
idle although it is a very promising prospect.
Indian Troops Doing Great
Work near Lille—20,000
Killed and Wounded
Paris, Oct 28—Last week the
Germans gained the shortest victory of the war to date. In the
neighborhood of Lille they massed
strong forces behind a slight elevation and suddenly poured into
the nearby British trenches an
irrestible fire. Despite a rain of
fire from heavy guns, Maxims
and rifles, their hugh columns by
sheer weight of numbers reached
the trenches and thrust our fellows out. The Germans followed
up their advantage, pursuing the
"Tommies" and cheering and
singing as they came.
All went well until they met
the British reserves, who happened to be Indian troops. For
a moment there was a wild scrimmage. The Sikhs and Ghurkas
gave the enemy a few rounds in
rapid succession, and then swung
into them with the utmost fervor
Back past our deserted trenches went the grey-coated Teutons,
frhile Sikh and Ghurka played
havoc in their disordered ranks.
Never has there been uch slaughter on any battle field.
Twenty thousand killed and
wounded Germans, nearly half
the attacking force lay along the
line of retreat, according to the
computation of a staff officer.
Our losses did not exceed two
thousand.
London Oct 28-Enrl Kitchener
and Sir John French insist on the
urgent need for more men, Germany's fierce resistance in trying
to win her way to Calais even if
every watercourse and canal in
Flanders becomes choked with
her dead leads the Times to remind the citizens of the Empire
that that they must follow the
German example. Germany is
hurling mass after mass of men
against the Allied lines as ruthlessly as she would sacrifice sheep
and Britain and the British Empire can only remain free if, in
spite of immense sacrifices the
British, French and Belgians
have made in the flower of their
manhood, fresh troops now come
forward.
London still maintains the average of a thousand recruits daily
All classes are attempting to
share in the great struggle, not
even clergymen are holding back.
Five curates from the London
suburb of Brixton have joined
the colors,

Count von Berndorff is getting

Russia has purchased Lady
Grey and J. T. Home, ice breakers, for the express purpose of

London, Oct 28— An evening
News despatch, from Northern
France, and timed 7 o'clock this
morning, says: "It is reported
that the Germans are fall ing back
all along the line from LaBassee
to the sea."
Prince Maurice of Batten berg,
a cousin to King George, and
a son of Princess Henry of Bat-
tenberg, has been killed on the
battlefield in France.
General  News  of Lillooet
District
Mr. A. F. Noel left for the
coast Sunday.
Local War enthuiast—I guess
the Germans thought the Indian
troops, with the rags on their
heads, were the wounded.
Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Walker of
Alexander creek, are spending a
few days in Lillooet.
Mr. and Mrs. Archibald and
child, Alexander creek, is also in
town these days, they having
recently arrived from the mine;
they are very enthuiastic over
their section of the country.
Mr, and Mrs. J. T. Rigg and
child, from the Horse Shoe Bend
Mine, accompanied by Mr. and
Mrs. T. R. Hollingworth and
child, are in town.
Messrs V. E. Keeley and F.
Keeley, arrived this week from
the coast cities, after a month's
vacation.
The key to "some shack" was
found the other evening—some
key, too.
Mr. and Mrs. M. R. Eagleson
arrived home the latter part of
last week. We are pleased to
state that at present "Mark" is
considerably better, and we hope
ere long to see his familiar face
in our midst.
W, O. Black of Vancouver says
he saw seven or eight British
soldiers "shot to pieces" by drink
— what a percentage—records in
the.trenches, hardly prove that
the British Empire defenders are
"shot to pieces" by drink.
Public Meeting
At a Public meeting held in
Santini Hall on October 24th,
(Mr. W. Adams in the chair)
the disposal of the money in the
hands of the Secretary-Treasurer
of the Lillooet War Fund was
discussed.
A statement by W. T. Bridge,
in the absence of P. LaMare
showed a balance in hand of $332
W. Mclntyre moved and S.
Gibbs seconded a motion "that
the funds in hand be sent to the
Belgian Relief Fund." An amendment to this to the effect "that
the sum of $500, when the funds
have reached that figure, be sent
to the Belgian relief fund was
moved by E. Sweet and seconded
by A. B. Greig," motion carried.
During the discussion J. T.
Rigg mentioned the fact that letters from his relatives in the Old
Country referred to numerous
cases of Belgian families being
housed by private families. He
had also first hand information of
innumerable victims of German
barbarity in the form of children
with ears slashed off and faces
disfigured by the brutal soldiery
of the Kiser.
A motion by S. Gibbs, to the
effect "that following the donation of $500 to the Belgian fund,
there be sent to the Canadian
Patriotic Fund a sum of $500, as
soon as the collection should reach
that figure" was seconded by M.
Mclntyre, motion carried.
A vote of thanks to the Chairman was carried and the ' 'Maple
Leaf" was sung and "God save
the King" closed the meeting.
Distribution of Seed Grain
From Dominion Experimental Farms
By instructions of the Hon.
Ministe-i of Agriculture a distribution of superior sorts of
grain and potatoes will be made
during the coming winter and
spring to Canadian farmers. The
samples for general distribution
will consist of spring wheat (a-
bout 5 lbs) white oats (about 4
lbs.), barley (about 5 lbs), and
field peas (about 5 lbs). These
will be sent out from Ottawa.
A distribution of potatoes (in 31b
samples) will be carried on from
several of the experimental farms
the Central farm at Ottawa supplying only the provinces of Ontario an Quebec. All samples
will be sent free, by mail.
Applicants must give particulars in r,egard to soil on their
farms, and some account of their
experience with such kinds of
grain (or potatoes) as they have
grown, so that a promising sort
for their conditions may be selected.
Each application must be sep-
arte and must be signed by the
applicant. Only one sample of
grain and one of potatoes can be
sent to each farm. If both samples are asked for in the same
letter only one will be sent. Applications on any kind of printed
form cannot be accepted.
As the supply of seed is limited
farmers are advised to apply
early; but the application will not
necessarily be filled in the exact
order in which they are received.
Preference will always be given
to the most thoughful and explicit requests. Applications received after the end of January
will probably be too late.
All applications for grain (and
and the applications from the
provinces of Ontario and Quebec
for potatoes) should be addressed
to the Dominion Cerealist, Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa.
Such applications require no postage. If otherwise addressed delay and disappoinmentmay occur.
Applications, for potatoes, from
farmers in any other province
should be addressed (postage prepaid) to the Superintendent of
the nearest Branch Experimental
Farm in that province.

Director, Dominion Experimental
Farms.

Confidence
Our first duty, at any cost,
is to aid Great Britain's sustenance and defence, and our
next duty, not less important, is to keep the business
of the Dominion as normally
as possible.
Let it be remembered that
while we must lay aside
something to pay our share
of the cost of the war, we
have at our backs storehouses of natural wealth
scarcely yet touched. An
the calamities of Europe
place a higher value on our
wheat and other exportable
crops, S3 will the same calamities—the result of militarism and conscription—
make the peaceful land of
Canada more attractive to
some of the best people of
Europe whose hopes and
lands, generation after generation, have been despoiled
or devastated by war. At
the present instant Canada
stands practically immune
from the physical menace of
war; our fields are giving
their wealth to the harvester,
and our other resources are
yielding their bounty in far
greater proportions than ever
Wealth production is proceeding, and the opportunities for still greater primary
production are not diminishing. This continent, including Canada, will profit largely and speedily by the changes in the world's currents of
trade during the war. Many
of our factories will find demands upon them stimulated
because of restriction placed
upon the productive machinery of Europe by the exigencies of war, and though for a
time in diminished quantities,
a fair proportion of Britain's
available capital will come
to Canada for investment.
Under the circumstances,
therefore, the one great essential to keep business moving is confidence, and Canada, probably of all nations of
the world, has least excuse
to offer for lack of it.
But for this to be accom-
Dlished, the situation must
oe faced with courage and
confidence on the part of
overyone. Investors must
continue to invest, bankers
must continue to lend, and
every one according to his
ability must endeavor to
work hard in order that individual incomes, and therefore the income of the whole
nation, may be maintained
at the highest possible level.
A little over a century ago,
when the nation was at war
with Napoleon, its income
was a very small one, being
less than one-eighth of what
it is at present, and in a comparatively small space of
time the "British people suc
ceeded in raising about £1,-
000,000,000 of money for
war purposes, and so great
was their confidence and
courage that at the end of
the great war, which severely taxed their resources, they
| were stronger and wealthier
than they had been at the
beginning.
Canada's natural store is
as yet barely touched. From
any temporary lull in our
progress, from whatever
cause, we can, therefore, recover ourselves more quickly
than did the Motherland after her world struggle of a
century ago, if our people
are of the same heart and industry, and we are confident
thoy are. Courage in the
fight for the Empire is not
more necessary than courage
in the maintenance of the industry and commerce of the
country.
